Senate Committee approves US food safety bill

A Senate Committee recently unanimously approved a revamped set of US food safety laws, which, under the FDA, also impact petfood.
The bill is expected to be on the Senate floor sometime next year, according to
The committee approved the legislation with just a few changes:
*Authorizing the federal government to fund increasing states' food safety capabilities
*Whistleblower protections
*Requiring the government to consider organic standards
The House earlier approved the same bill, which would increase FDA regulatory powers, such as allowing it to order a food recall.
